I have been watching GH since . (the 70's) and have, more often than not, been entertained by the writing, character portrayals ,etc.. I've read the comments below and though I agree with some of them, I disagree with others. I'd like to respond to as many as I can so here goes... I think Luke Spencer's character is dreadful and oh, writers and producers, please hear TIME TO WRAP IT UP!!! Next are the agree that as children they should not be involving themselves in adult, crushes, dating, kinds of things. Maybe one or 2 mentions of the boys having crushes on Emma, but they really are too young. I think you as writers you can be so more creative than this. The new am blown away by this amazing, gorgeous, gifted little is a rare love the former Lulu and I hope she has success in whatever she is doing, truly, but you have certainly picked a winner here in my book. A replacement does not have to be an exact replica, but someone who resembles the character enough and then brings to the table a fresh new set of just my opinion : ) OHHHHHHH Dr really is out of the ordinary and something I think we can all just give a thumbs down Does she really get off scott-free and still remain chief?BIG BLUNDER! I have gone from really disliking Brit (ok almost hating, I hate to hate) to almost liking not with Nikolas. I would like to see Nikolas with Elizabeth as in . Then there's the issue of GH pushing know, I am a woman of faith and yes this bothers me. I am alone when watching GH, I understand the frustration of the many who have commented about this on this page. We cannot escape it, it is everywhere. I have 2 daughters who have taught me that to be intolerant is not something Jesus would i understand that you don't have or you don't want to sit there and watch it. There is more that I would like to add, but the puppy I'm not sure what entering a score with my review is all that how I would score the show? All in all I love GH. 7.5
Have the writers, directors, casting directors, etc. etc. all gone brain dead? I have been watching this show for over 30 years and have at times been less then happy with the plots but the past year or so it has gotten so bad it's laughable! Greatest character ever,now a really evil bad guy!!! OMG what a BAD idea!! Then a really evil person (plus being a really bad actress with one of the worse accents I've ever heard) they appear to be trying to make into a GOOD GUY! Really! Not to mention that they have already done that with her daughter Brit (the britch). And how STUPID do they think we are that either one of them could actually get way with all the crimes they've committed? Come on you guys! A soap opera is one thing but COMPLETE lack of believability is something else! Who is writing this DRIVEL? And I've heard something about a different actor to play the part of Jason! Are you kidding me!!! That would be like someone else playing the part of Luke Spencer or Laura or Sonny! And while we're on the subject. OMG! The actress that now plays Lulu! I've never seen a more terrible replacement,used to love the old Lulu but the girl that plays her now, no matter how much I try, cannot stand her!! Not to mention the fact that the script they are writing for her does not even come close to resembling the old (real) Lulu character. Lulu was strong and smart, not whiny, stupid and weak! I still watch it in hopes they will fire the brain dead writers they are using and start doing better, but I have just about given up on GH! Thank goodness for recording, I can fast forward thru all this crap!
I can't call it a hair 'style' as it looks like she took the curlers out before the hair was totally dry and then didn't run even run a comb through it. What gives? I agree that Spencer and Luke are now totally, overboard obnoxious.
The children are being tapped to do this "love triangle" thing. It's unbelievable that they are acting like adults. I know these kids are very talented, I can see, but can't you just make them into normal kids. Bullying is a hot topic nowadays. Kids being lured into prostitution and taking/selling drugs and who is the culprit behind it. GH should tap on stories of kids being "bullied" in school, and finding out who the culprit behind the bullying and how the parents can help to stop one of their kids from commiting suicide. Well since Luke has become a bad guy getting drugs shipped into Port Charles, I hope you can continue a storyline wherein one of the kids was lured into the drug dealing scene. I know who can be excellent for that role is Spencer since he already has a run in with Luke.
I have been watching GH since it's inception. I am not impressed with the story lines going on now with General Hospital. In addition, I don't watch GH to see three days of characters performing during the nurse's ball. This could have been wrapped up in one day. The writers are getting lost in the story lines and main actors such as Luke and Sony are now out of character. They need to get back to the basics.
I have to agree with the previous comment. I am also saying goodbye to GH for good which at this time is very easy to do since the story line is not so interesting. If people want to see more Interracial-action on TV then I think there should be some shows just for that type of behavior and that it should be on cable but please don't think that most of the population wants to see it on everyday TV. Black boys kissing white girls and black women flirting with white men is not what the majority population wants to see.
I don't like gh like I use to. I hate that Luke is playing this mean and ugly person. Why couldn't you just pay Luke more money. When will everybody know that Ava kill Connie. The part you have Sonny playing and with Ava of all people, I hate that you are messing Sonny role up. I hate that you kill off AJ. And he had a dumb part. And you kill off all of Monica kids. You do know you lost a lot of fans? I don't like this gay thing you're showing on tv. It's sick. God made Adam and Eve. Seeing men sleep with men or women sleep with women is just nasty. I also don't like that you are having young kids playing boyfriend and girlfriend . It's bad enough in the real world when you have these kids thinking about sex etc. everything is about sex, drinking , or soaps haveing roles of sister sleeping with sister husband or boyfriend, or brother sleeping with brother wife. Roles like that is not ok it's sick and just plain nasty. Tv today is dirty it's not like back in the day where tv was clean and people kept their cloths on. I hope they get read of all soaps. tv! It's not the same anymore. :( :( GH sucks now.
I have been only watching this for about 8 months, have really gotten into this show. The people on the show are very good. Really like Britt, really don't like Elizabeth, she was shot in today epsiode I was glad she was, Maybe now she should stay out a everyone business. I hope Nicolas and Britt try to work it out.
I've been a fan of GH since the 1970's. I must admit, there have been storylines which had me tune out for awhile. But I am enjoying GH in recent years. This is due to the hiring of Frank Valentini (Producer) and Ron Carlivati (Writer). They are not only clever, but have brought back favorite characters from the past. Some of these characters were "let go" from GH by former Producers. Frank and Ron were fans of GH long before they were part of the GH staff--so they understand the history.
The ratings have not been this high for years.
The only issue which frustrates me with the show is that some characters disappear for a week or two.
I think the "character process" they are using is "when needed"-----only use characters if the storyline permits. Sometimes, we might not see Luke or Lucy for two weeks.
But----GH was on the verge of cancellation before Frank and Ron came aboard. So I do give them congrats for that.
I do respect all these opinions. There were times when I was not happy with the show
Never knew how much I allowed GH to take up my valuable time to serve others! It took my taking an overall look at what the writers of the soap opera were promoting! No traditional marriages working out! No Patrick and Robin; No Lulu and Dante; No Sam and Jason! Only continual sexual perversion to include a son sleeping with his wife's mother! Gay life as normal and teaching Emma that this is okay! Stigma toward the mentally ill and psychopaths:. giving the audience TOO MUCH of poor actresses like Heather Webber and Dr. O as the head of what??? The writers are outside their minds! Long for TV artists like Jason, Robin, and Lucky! Who knows the real reason they fled and escaped this madness!
I have to agree with the previous comment. I am also saying goodbye to GH for good which at this time is very easy to do since the story line is not so interesting. If people want to see more Gay inter-action on TV then I think there should be some shows just for that type of behavior and that it should be on cable but please don't think that most of the population wants to see it on everyday TV. Men kissing men and women kissing women is not what the majority population wants to see.
I am so disappointed in the direction this show has taken. I started watching GH again when the OLTL characters came on. That has been a complete disaster creating new characters for the wonderful actors. I tried to watch OLTL on line, which is a complete fail in my opinion.
If any of the decision makers care enough to read these comments, they will see that NO, sex does not always sell. There are some of us with morals and find the sexed up shows very trashy and disgusting. I know you have nothing to do with OLTL now. However, I refused to watch when the blouses got much lower on Vicki and Dorian (gross), and skirts shorter on the others, for the online version. Lack of trashiness is not what forced AMC and OLTL off the air.
Please see a few of the following examples. Not to mention the stupid continued storyline's such as Heather, Faison and now Britt's mom. Really? And Robin, in and out with a current ridiculous reason to bow out again.
1. Molly and TJ ready for sex? This actress is underage in real life. This should be considered sexual exploitation of a minor.
2. The gay spit and sex scenes. And don't throw out that 'I'm ***phobic' or 'prejudiced' I think it is disgusting. These shows are on in public arenas such as doctor's offices, etc. Completely embarrassing to witness this disgusting act in front of children and seniors. That's what happened to me. They thought it was pornography.
Also, I'm not trying to be rude. However, I think the hair cuts of the male actors have been terrible. Most of the actors on GH are good looking until they get one of the signature out dated hair cut that looks like a bowl cut. Sorry, it is not attractive. There is much more but I have had enough focus on this smut. After 35 years for me, it is my final goodbye. Since many of the great characters have left on their own. Its time for me to do the same.
I am very disappointed in the direction they have taken GH! They are putting down conservatives right and left and making us look bad for having a difference of opinion on traditional marriage and relationships. It will always be un-natural to watch same sexes kissing each other and then adding disgusting comments like ;I hope you changed the sheets" man commenting on another mans date with his man. You have sunk to an all time low and not worthy of my viewing. That is my right which I am taking. I question your need to force your view... or is it your intention to brain wash or shame others into believing your twisted distorted view of relationships is actually ok? We all will answer someday for the kind of influence we had on others. I hope you are comfortable with that and also with losing many, many viewers!
I've been watching GH for 30 years - I even hung in there when the writing was so stupid that I couldn't believe I was wasting my time. I, however, absolutely refuse to sit through this nauseating gay story line. So far, whenever these guys are on, I switch the channel. I am not going to watch guys in bed together, let alone watch them kiss. If GH decides to continues to go in that direction, I'll just have to accept the fact that it's time for me to move on. Leaving GH might not be such a bad idea - in addition to the "boys," there isn't an interesting plot in the whole show. Why did they bring Kimberly back and give her boring writing? Maybe it's time for "Robin" to leave town for good. Don't even get me started on this ridiculous Heather story! The writers must think the GH viewers are so dumb that they can have Heather dig herself out of a grave, write a message with enough of her blood to supply the blood bank, drag Carly all over town and even get Luke tied up in the mental hospital (lets not forget with a blond wig) and we will watch with bated breath! Oh, I even walked away from falling off a high rise building! Now that I think about it, GH is sinking fast! Hope someone from GH reads the fans' reviews.
Ok, enough is enough! It was bad enough extending GH to the gay community, but REALLY!!!! Do we now HAVE to show to men in bed with one another and swapping spit. I'm so disgusted by this that I will probably quit watching GH. I'm sick and tired of having a small portion of the population directing what we see and don't see on TV. This has just gone too far! There are enough gay shows on TV that can't we just leave some shows for the "NORMAL" people in this population????? Also happening on my other favorite show "REVENGE"! I really don't want to see this and there are alot of people who do. DIRECTORS!!!!!! GET WITH EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE THIS ON TV. If that's how people want to live their lives, so be it, but we the American Public don't want to see it.
By far the worst actor I have ever seen in my life. I was so happy when Franco Stabbed her and I thought she was finally gone for good. Then she came back and it almost made me stop watching the show. All the does is wear those stupid trench coats and ugly A S S sunglasses and threatens over and over again that she is going to kill Carly. Do your show a favor and get rid of Heather Webber AKA Robin Mattson for good.
Please please please get rid of Heather Webber!!!!!!! Seriously enough is enough of her. Also, is anyone else disappointed that Robin is back? She is just an annoying character and she and Patrick no longer have that same chemistry. She isn't likeable anymore, and she gives off an air of being better than everyone, not just in the show, but in her interviews. Move on Kimberly, the show was fine without you.
Have not been happy with stories for some time. Some have been good but too much reliance on nostalgia and the over the top Heather Webber stories have been annoying me for some time. Can't even eat a BLT anymore thakns to these stupid stories! They will send GH the way of the soap graveyard soon and it is too bad as it has been the only one I have stuck with in all the years of viewing.
Taken it too far, too bored, not bothering anymore and the ratings should show not alone in this soon. The better actors Roger Howarth especially, hope to see on something worthy of your talent soon.
Add this to the recent decision for to restrict viewership online access to cable subscribers for up to one week delay and not bothering with these fools any longer. really??? a psycho running the hospital that was in jail??? had not watched in two weeks and tuned in today to catch this stupidity. Turned off the tube and went for a lovely walk in fog! BYE
HOW IN THE HECK ARE YOU ALL GOING TO LET A PSYCHOPATH OUT OF JAIL, AND BE HEAD OF THE HOSPITAL. HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR MINDS. YOU ALL HAVE DONE SOME DUMB STUFF WITH THIS PICTURE BUT THIS HAS GONE WAY OVER THE EDGE. AND ANOTHER THING HOW IN THE HECK DOES A CRAZY PERSON CONSTANTLY GET OUT OF THE NUT HOUSE AND NO ONE IS LOOKING FOR HER (HEATHER WEBER) WE KNOW THIS IS A JUST SOAP OPERA BUT DO YOU ALL REALLY HAVE TO TRY TO INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE. STUPID, STUPID OH YES DID I MENTION THIS IS STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's weird that you take one character out of the picture and the whole show falls apart because the show hasn't hasn't been the same since Jason some storylines keep on being remade except with different characters example,Britt's baby is actually Dante & Lulu's and she's hiding it from them because she doesn't want to give it up and believes Nik won't want to be with her after knowing the truth which is like Maxie wanting carrying a baby that she was going to carry for them when it was really her's & Spinelli's only to hide it from them because she thought she'd lose they're doing the whole Patrick happy with his woman only to find out the woman he was with before her is now pregnant except he's with Robin again and it's Sabrina who is pregnant along with the fact that she could actually be pregnant with his kid unlike when Britt made him think he was the need to come up with new storylines instead of repacking old ones with different characters involved and I hope they keep Robin along with one day bring Jason not,just end it since it's been on even before I was born and they can't come up with something new.
~ soap history 101, LoL, when ABC's General Hospital paid homage to the old Agnes Nixon half-hour ABC soap opera, Loving recently by featuring the Alden mansion that Jerry Jacks was hiding out in and with the mention of Loving's fictional town name, Corinth the newbies had no clue, LoL, and now when I YouTube search > general hospital sneak peek for 10/28/13
The show is no good without Jason Morgan. And I am not talking about a recast it needs to be Steve Burton. I hate all the dead people coming back as well but that is the ONE AND ONLY person that needs to remain on the show. Do what you have to do and bring him back :) PLEASE!
What's going on with the casting on GH these days? Bringing back Anna was the best, but things just
went down hill since then. The OLTL people just don't fit. They didn't do well as their OLTL characters,
and giving them completely new identities is worse. Todd Manning was OK, but Franco is terrible. I don't see why the actress that played Starr Manning would be so popular. She over acts all the time. Same with the new character she's playing. Obnoxious, unnatural. "Suddenly" she is all "good" after turning Morgan to gambling? I still don't know if she wanted to scam him at first. And her mom, can't stand her either. I understand wanting to be loyal your team. But if they didn't do well, making them someone else (after such a short time is not going to help! Please, spare us the pain! And the new girl Taylor. The character is terrible but at least the previous actress was good. The one new just forces me to push the "ff" button on my DVR. The only thing I have to look forward to now is Robin coming back.
